Proudest moment at work?
I am obliged to say that it followed upon the completion of the Corporate Market Programme for Barclays, probably about 1997 – it was a good partnership with lovely people, a well-executed analysis & design, brilliant events & programmes over a couple of years and perfectly clear results. We went to a party in some posh Barclays corporate party-spot and I got drunk and could have spoiled everything (but I didn't, so it was a fantastic evening)
How do you deal with stress?
I worry about it a lot
